Hello from a dull and dreary Perthshire. Where has the sun gone? All the bulbs are coming up in the garden, so we know for sure that Spring is on the way!!
I've been busy making cards, and I want to show you this one I made using an image from
he is called Bobbin Fairy
I love Mo's fairies, they all look so cute and cheeky!
This is a CAS (clean and simple) card, and I love the way it has turned out.
I printed the image on white card and coloured him with Promarkers.
I put some glitter on his wings, and added a button onto his strap.
I then mounted the white card onto red card, to draw attention to the red thread etc.
I took an 8" x 8" scalloped card and covered with some chevron striped paper, which was free from one of the many magazines I subscribe to.
The red card was then stuck onto the patterned paper.
I computer generated a sentiment
Mum you are so amazing!!
and then cut it out using a Spellbinder scalloped heart die.
I placed this on the corner of the card.
I threaded some Bakers Twine through a red button, tied it in a bow and stuck it to the corner of the card just above the sentiment.
